University of Minnesota

The University of Minnesota Drupal User Group works to share knowledge and resources, find solutions to shared challenges, and enable effective use of Drupal at University of Minnesota campuses across Minnesota. Staff, students, and faculty are all welcome here.

We will strive to be a bridge, not a silo, and encourage participation and sharing with others in our communities, be they geographical (Twin Cities at g.d.o) or professional (Higher Education).

Drupal 8 Play Date (Sept 26)

Start: 
2015-09-26 09:30 - 16:00 America/Chicago
Event type: 
User group meeting


Drupal 8 is almost ready! For a few moments (last week), we were down to only 3 critical issues. Since then the number has bumped back up into the teens. But with DrupalCon Barcelona coming next week, the chances are very good that we'll see some significant movement - with a release candidate in the very near future!

Let's celebrate by having a hands-on PLAY DATE with DRUPAL EIGHT.

This will be a great opportunity for beginners and advanced coders alike to get an introduction to Drupal 8 and start setting up a site of their own.

This month, we will revisit the topic originally planned for last month: development environments. How do you set up your local (or remote) development environment? What are your go-to tools? How to you wire them together? IDEs, bundled "development stacks," distro-based tools? Come share what works for you (and what doesn't) and perhaps learn from others.

Update

We've revised our topic for April to focus on setting up the University Drupal environment locally for development. Some people have hit snags in getting this environment working, so we will take the hour to run through the process, identify the problems we find, and revise documentation for later reference. We'll move the general "environments" topic to next month.

Hope to see you all there!
